Indianapolis is home to the world's largest children museum—you could spend days exploring it. In addition to its rare, mummified dinosaur and "Power of Children" exhibit that highlights children who have shaped history, the museum hosts regular expert meet-and-greets with their in-residence underwater archaeologist, as well as a former astronaut who conducts a STEM camp in the summer. Beyond the children's museum, Indianapolis also is home to an impressive art center, zoo, Rhythm! Discovery Center, an interactive history park where you can travel back to the 1800s (and ride 350 feet in a helium-filled balloon) and GoApe!, a forest adventure filled with trapezes, Tarzan swings and zip lines.
